Born on station. Myroodah Station, Derby side. My mother and father, granddad, grandmother, uncles, aunties, we all been grew up here. I been going to school here. Working in the house, cooking, go for hunting. Always take us out for bush tucker, fishing.
Me and my mum we been cooking for station owner, Charles Lanigan. Mary his daughter. Always work on the station, clean up, cooking, washing. Everybody got to get up early, go to school there.
That's my home. We all been there, we get big there. Get all the eggs from the chickens, milk the nanny goat, mop the floor, make bed, wash all the sheets.
We didn't go to Derby school. Mr Lanigan said you go to school here. Going mustering my dad, my mum did the cooking. Mr Lanigan always take us to Derby for shopping, then take us back to Myroodah Station, Martu Station. Family all in Looma, all the Greens. Big mob us Greens.
